As a convoy of vintage cars, sports cars and supercars sets a course for Corton Denham in Somerset this spring, The Queens Arms has announced a day of automobile appreciation on Monday 1 May. Open to everyone from classic car aficionados to eager young enthusiasts, The Queens Arms’ Cars, Coffee and Cake event will take place at Corton Denham Manor House Garden on Bank Holiday Monday, from 11am until 5pm.

With pre-1966 classics sitting side-by-side with soft tops and supercars, this will be the perfect place for petrol heads of all ages to see, hear and smell these iconic vehicles in all their glory.

Visitors will be kept well fuelled by The Queens Arms’ award-winning kitchen team, serving up coffee, cake, gluten-free treats and soft drinks all day, alongside flame grilled fare from the BBQ, as the exhibitors fire up their engines. A menu ranging from black bean marinated sirloin steak and spicy pork ribs to seared tuna loin and grilled halloumi will set taste buds racing, all served with a choice of salads from the pub’s own kitchen garden, located just a stone’s throw away within the grounds of Corton Denham Manor House Garden itself.

The owners of Corton Denham Manor House Garden will be requesting a donation of £3.50 per person to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution in return for opening up their gardens for this day of family fun.
